Description Robert McClure 2017-07-29 01:13:22 UTC
Installation proceeds normally but execution fails because of missing component: api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll. Removed and tried again with same result. Removed and reinstalled 5.3.3 and it is fine.
Comment 1 Regina Henschel 2017-07-29 12:13:47 UTC
How do you install this version? Which version of Windows do you use? Do you have the right to save something into c:\Windows\ ?
Comment 2 Aron Budea 2017-07-29 15:22:43 UTC
According to this:

The following update is missing:
Update for Universal C Runtime in Windows
Comment 3 Aron Budea 2017-07-29 20:51:15 UTC
Robert, please reply here in the bug report. You mentioned that the runtime was installed in your Windows version, both 32-bit and 64-bit, or only one of them? Note that LibreOffice requires a runtime with the same bitness.
Comment 4 Robert McClure 2017-07-29 22:19:16 UTC
The missing module was in both the 32 bit and the 64 bit folders. I went to the trouble however, of downloading the update files from Microsoft again and this has now fixed the problem. I cannot see any difference in the api repositories on the machine. I suppose it is possible that it was some kind of permissions problem, but the prior version (5.3.3) never had any problems whatsoever.

Indeed, it's still a bit strange, could you share the Windows version you're using?
